On Saturday, the long-awaited girls' weekend was finally upon us, and we hit the trails to commemorate the occasion. Courtney (better known as Court Bourt, of course) and I had one of our first few outings together on the trails of western North Carolina, and another day out in creation was the perfect getaway to celebrate nearly six years of adventuring alongside each other. There are few people I treasure like this lady, and it was an incredible blessing to discover new-to-us paths in an old-to-me park while simply talking about life. So much has changed since we first met, and it's so refreshing to find rest and peace in this lifelong friend the Lord has graciously granted me.
Carrick Creek Trail did not disappoint, and I was given strength to fight through oncoming sickness to enjoy a lovely day out in God's handiwork with one of His best works of art. Everything about this day was so, so perfect. Our next girls' weekend better get written into the calendar soon, because I'm already looking forward to all the fun we'll add to our track record of shenanigans!
